Lenovo Y410p / Y510p - unlocked BIOS / wlan whitelist mod / vbios mod

Recommended Posts

Hi. Thanks for the help.

I want to ask a question. I use a y510p and i want to be able to set fan speeds to %100 manually and leave them at %100 speed as long as i need. I'm not interested any other benefit of this bios mod. Is this possible with this bios mod ? If not and you answer my question, you may save me from a lot of effort to the mod then return to the original bios.

Thanks anyway.

Quick question, so I was followed the directions, I opened the .bat file from the command prompt as an administrator and it created a file called bios.bin. That's the only file it created so I assume that's the backup but when i drag it onto the biosfixer or try to open it with the biosfixer it doesn't create any new file called v305mod.bin. am I the only one this is happening to? Any help would be appreciated.

I actually was just having the exact same problem a couple minutes ago. Open biosfixer and drag the bios into the window of the program. ;)

No, this is not (yet?) possible. This BIOS/EC mod does not allow you to control fan speeds. Look at @allstone and his IdeaFan script, for now, that's the closest you'll get to controlling fan speeds.

I would be interested how I can

voltage change from onboard video card

reduced from 1,1v to 1,05v

If it is possible by modifying the parameters in BIOS

I know that the motherboard onboard video BIOS gt755m is included in version 3.05.

There is something that you can edit?

The performance certainly 1.05v remain unchanged but the temperature will be lower by at least 5-8 degrees

You can undervolt both cards in NVIDIA Inspector after flashing the custom VBIOSs.

Tried and saw it myself : ) And the mod works like a charm. No problems at all applying it. Very good instructions. Thanks again.

Psst. Read the forum rules! There is something written about 5 quality posts ;)

Not unless someone risks a DMCA takedown request...

The file stays here and people come here to get it, get support and provide feedback.

You can just run the code (inside that .bat file) using CMD with administrator privileges

I guess that's subjective then.. I have 5 quality posts, multi-sentence, actually said something of value. I guess I'll just keep posting and eventually someone will decide that 5 of them are "quality"

I wasn't suggesting violate DMCA.. If the author hosts it somewhere else, there is no violation. Thanks for the response though

It seems that has already happened, I don't see any of your posts in queue for approval and you got already 7 posts. Just wait until the server reloads permissions. If you still can't download anything in 1-2h please contact an administrator.

The way I know svl7 that is not going to happen, had some bad experience with that. People came here to download didn't even read the support thread, posted their issues on NBR or similar and then complained there that the files weren't working as advertised. That left a bad reputation for the modder and the forums bandwidth was used up by leechers rather than members. But I'm glad to hear that you are one of the reasonable guy out there.

Going from 1.07 to 2.07 solved my battery drain problem ... wondering if going to 3.05 will solve the battery charging issue where you have to unplug the battery and plug it back in to get it to charge again? Quite annoying and happens on both of my batteries.

Has anyone with a 7260AC upgraded to the modded v3.05 and been able to successfully get their wifi card to go to sleep without disabling Bluetooth?

I am on this step:

(2) - Download the files for the v3.05 mod, put the files of folder [1] to the root of your prepared USB DOS stick.

Let the BiosFixer prepare your BIOS for flashing by drag and dropping your backup file on it. Put the created "v305mod.bin" file to the root of your USB DOS drive as well.

Nothing happens when I drag and drop my backup file on the biosfixer so I can't get the "v305mod.bin" file. Any suggestions?

Did you open the Biosfixer program first and then drag the bios backup bin file onto it?

---

Tried the bios. Everything is working fine. Was able to safely undervolt to -125mv (using nvidia inspector) which lead to a nice 5-10C drop in GPU temps. Thanks!

No, I dragged the bios back up file on the biosfixer without opening it. Biosfixer simply opens with this message :

Lenovo Y410p / Y510p For BIOS version v3.05

This mod will replace the VBIOS of your GPU.

Read the instructions carefully.

Use at your own risk.

Nothing happens after..

I think you're supposed to drag the bios file onto the program after you open the program. And you didnt notice any new files in the same folder as your backup bios?

Nevermind, solved the problem. For some reason it did not work when the files were on desktop, but when I put both file in a folder worked as intended. Posting post flash btw, successfully installed intel 7260 AC adapter on Lenovo y510p. Thanks a lot for this thread!

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?

      Bios Release Version – v2.0.0
       

       
      Updated or Modded Items:
      A11 UNLOCKED BIOS FOR m18Xr2 (UNLOCKED BY SVL7 AND FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR UNLOCKING!)
      SVL7 Also created the PRR2.EXE tool that allows you to flash the new bios by unlocking it.  (FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR THAT FILE PRR2.EXE)
       
      Here are ALL the things I've added, modded, and enhanced on this bios -
      I've added FULL LEGACY SUPPORT ON THIS BIOS with ONE or TWO CARDS (SLI).  You can FINALLY use Win 7 OS on your machine and run the 900 series GPU's! 
      This is a MAJOR breakthrough!
       
      LEGACY SUPPORT Confirmed.  Works with 900 series GPu's in single OR SLI formation Updated the Intel RST Legacy to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated Intel RST UEFI to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated the ONBOARD Video Card for the HD3xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated ONBOARD Video Card for the HD4xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated the LAN Firmware & PXE Boot from 2.0.5.9 to v2.0.6.6 ADDED NvMe Support for m18xr2 ADDED M.2 support for m18xr2 Updated CPU Microcode to v29 for the 2900 CPU's Updated CPU Microcode to v1c for the 3900 CPU's Updated GOP Driver for Intel Sandy Bridge CPU Updated GOP Driver for Intel Ivy Bridge CPU Updated MAIN GOP Policy module for the m18xR2 Eliminated some code that wasn't used in the m18xR2 Updated CSM Module (v2) Streamline some coding to make mod(s) run a little more efficiently (v2) Added FPARTS.TXT to rar file in v2. (I had forgot to add it in v1) v2.5 to be released shortly.  I've updated a few more modules that I didn't realize could be updated.  (It's only 3 modules, but it's still an update!)   It should be released in about a week.  Hope this helps ya'll!  
      Instructions to flash:
      Use a flash drive to create a boot disk into dos Unzip ALL files into the root of the flash drive (flash.bat, r2final.bin, fpt.exe, flash.bat, prr2.exe, fparts.txt,m18r2.hdr, m18r2.hdr.bin, readmefirst.txt) BOOT INTO DOS – Note, that when you set the bios to legacy in order to boot into dos, you MAY have to reinstall OS!  (Just be prepared to reinstall no matter what) Once you boot into dos, run the file flash.bat It will unlock your bios (THANKS TO SVL7’s BIOS UNLOCKING TOOL – ALL CREDIT TO HIM FOR THIS TOOL!) Let it flash… Reboot your pc, and enjoy the MASSIVE updates!  
      Be on the lookout as I do plan to release newer version with more updates in the future.  However, it wont be for at least a few weeks as I'm now working on legacy support for the m17xR4 and several other systems.  So please be patient!
       
      ENJOY!

      NVIDIA 'Maxwell' VBIOS mods
       
       
      Here you find modified VBIOS versions for the mobile parts of the Nvidia 'Maxwell' series.
      The VBIOS versions in this post are tweaked for performance and versatility. You'll get almost complete control over the performance parameters of your GPU.
      List of available VBIOS mods:
       
      Nvidia GTX 970m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 6 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments Nvidia GTX 980m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 8 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments  
      Screenshot demonstrating the capabilities of the 970m versions:

      >> Read the instructions carefully before flashing! <<
      If anything is unclear after reading or if you have additional remarks, please post in the thread.
       
      Flashing:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Here are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Do NOT use driver 347.09, it's broken and useless and won't allow you to overclock, even with the stock firmware.
      Don't distribute the files hosted here outside of Tech|Inferno. Don't modify the files you download here.
       
      Donation link in case you want to buy me a beer

      Thanks and cheers!
